NECO: Step-by-Step Guide To Register With a School

This interactive guide provides a comprehensive step-by-step process for students intending to register for the NECO exam through a school, emphasizing the importance of choosing an accredited school, accurately filling out the registration form, paying the registration fee, attending orientation, and ultimately sitting for the examination, to ensure a stress-free and successful registration process.

Welcome to this interactive guide on the NECO registration process with a school. If you're a student planning to register for the NECO exam, you're in the right place. 

NECO (National Examination Council) is a national examination body in Nigeria that conducts secondary school examinations. The exam is conducted in June/July every year (but the GCE type holds Nov/Dec), and registering for it can be overwhelming, especially for first-time candidates. 

However, with the right information and guidance, the registration process (for NECO June/July) can be stress-free and straightforward. That's why I've put together this step-by-step guide to help you navigate the NECO registration process with a school. 

I'll walk you through the process from choosing a school to obtaining your registration slip, and finally, sitting for the examination. 

So, let's get started!

Steps to Register NECO With a Secondary School of Your Choice

First, not all secondary schools are accredited to register candidates for or conduct the June/July NECO. You should be sure you find out, around you, schools that are already conducting the exam for some years now.

Also, steps 1 - 2 will not affect you if you're already in SS3 at a school accredited for NECO. External students (those not in the school) will take all the steps into consideration, however.

  1. Choose a School: The first step is to choose a school that is accredited by NECO to conduct the examination. You can check the list of accredited schools on the NECO website or visit the nearest NECO office. You can also visit each school to ask if they're accepting candidates for NECO
  2. Inform the School: Once you have chosen a school, inform the school authorities of your intention to register for the NECO exam. The school will provide you with the registration form and guide you through the registration process.
  3. Fill out the Registration Form: The registration form will require your personal details, subjects you wish to register for, examination center, and passport photograph. Fill out the form with accurate information. There will be biometric capturing (fingerprint registration) at a stage during the registration.
  4. Attach Required Documents: You will need to attach your birth certificate, two passport photographs, and a testimonial. This may not be asked for by a few schools as it is not a national requirement.
  5. Pay the Registration Fee: The school will inform you of the registration fee, which you will pay to the school. The school will then process your payment and register you for the exam. The fee varies among schools depending on their packages. However, officially, as of 2021, the NECO registration fee was N9,850 (Nine Thousand Eight Hundred and Fifty Naira) only.
  6. Verify Your Registration Details: Check the registration slip carefully to ensure that all your details are accurate. If there are any errors or omissions, inform the school authorities immediately.
  7. Obtain Your Registration Slip: After the final registration, the school will issue you a registration slip that contains your registration number, examination center, and subjects. This may also be in form of a school/exam ID card or photocard.
  8. Keep Your Registration Slip Safe: You will need your registration slip to sit for the examination and also to check your result. Keep it in a safe and secure place.

After The Registration, What Next?

  1. Attend Orientation: The school will organize an orientation program to prepare you for the examination. Attend the orientation to familiarize yourself with the exam format, rules, and regulations. Make sure you collect the official NECO timetable for your school exam officer so you won't miss a date
  2. Sit for the Examination: On the scheduled date, go to your examination center with your registration slip/ID card, writing materials, and other necessary items. Follow the exam guidelines and instructions carefully.
  3. Check Your Result: After the examination, you can check your result on the NECO website using your registration number. The result will be available in a few weeks (about 45 days) after the exam.

Registering for the NECO exam through a school can be a great option for students who want a stress-free and straightforward registration process. By following the steps I've outlined, you'll be well on your way to registering successfully for the NECO exam.
